Network for Good Holiday 'Good' Guide

  1. 1. 2011 Holiday ‘Good’ Guide<br />Your customers and employees are generous procrastinators: they want to join your holiday cause campaign, but need a little encouragement from you. This guide will show you how to unleash their generosity this holiday season. <br />
  2. 2. Generosity & The Holidays: A Perfect Fit<br />89% of consumers want companies to support causes at the holidays.<br />78% of consumers want to be personally engaged in these efforts.<br />81% of employees want to get involved in their company’s cause-related efforts through giving and matching grant campaigns.<br />73% of employees wish their company would do more to support causes.<br />Source: 2010 Cone Holiday Trend Tracker, 2010 Cone Cause Evolution Study <br />1<br />
  3. 3. December’s Spike in Donations<br />Online Giving by Time of year (2003-2009)<br />There isn't a long ramp up to online giving. Rather, there is a fast spike in donations concentrated in the last few days of the year.  <br />Fun fact: giving concentrates between 12PM-7PM on December 31st.<br />In December, nearly 50% of the donations for the month usually come in the last 6 days when Network for Good processes nearly $1 million or more in donations each day. And 10% of annual donations come in on the last 2 days of the year.<br />More than 30% of annual giving via Network for Good's donation processing system is during December.<br />Regardless of when the days of the week vs. weekends fall during the holidays, the pattern of the spike in giving remains constant.<br />The average donation amount is higher in December: In December 2010, the average gift was $142 versus an average of $91 for the year.<br />2<br />
  4. 4. How to Help Your Generous Procrastinators<br />Start thinking about your holiday cause campaign now. <br />Thank individuals who participated in a cause marketing initiative, giving campaign or volunteer program during 2011.  You can acknowledge their past support, including your company’s collective impact.<br />Consider rewarding customers, clients or employees by letting them direct where your corporate philanthropic dollars get spent. With Network for Good’s Good Card® - a gift card for charity - your audience can choose their favorite charities to support, but your company gets the tax credit.<br />Consider hosting an end of the year giving campaign or challenge with matching funds. This is a great way to tap into the spirit of the season and amplify your audience’s generosity.<br />2<br />
